The careful selection of terroirs with specific altitudes, climates and orientations gives to our Gigondas Laurus a complex balance between finesse and minerality, richness and spicy notes.
Ancient alluvial terraces from the Quaternary period of the river Ouvèze to the west of the Appellation for the Grenache.
Marly limestone soils from the Cretaceous period, in the heart of the mountains known as Dentelles de Montmirail, at 400 m of altitude for the Syrah
Manual harvest. Grapes are immediately de-stemmed and pressed. The fermentation temperature was stabilized at 30 °C. Maceration lasted 28 days with regular punch-downs / rack-and-return operations for the Grenache and pumping over for the Syrah. 15 months of elevage for the Syrah wine in 275-litre oak Laurus barrels (new, 1 and 2 wines).

Rich crimson colour. The nose combines pleasant, gourmet aromas of stewed fruit and Burlat cherries. To the palate, it is the Syrah variety produced on Dentelles de Montmirail soils that prevail. The result is fresh-tasting and smooth, with pleasantly long-lasting aromas (Feb. 2014).
